A family of pigs crosses the dirt road between San Juan del Sur and Playa Coco. Taken in mid-August, 2005.
Miskito Alan says: "If a person driving a vehicle in Puerto Cabezas hits and kills a male pig; the pig owner must be paid x amount of pesos.
If a person driving a vehicle in Puerto Cabezas, hits and kills a female pig; the owner of the pig receives a premimum "pig price" and the offender (killer) must also pay more pesos per a formula for the unborn pigs of the dead female pig.
is there a pig-herder not pictured or do nicaraguans trust their pigs to run wild?
i can't imagine their completely wild -- seems they'd be way too valuable a resource.
No, there was no cowboy or pigboy watching these critters as far as I could see. There were houses nearby so the pigs weren't far from home.
If you hit a man over the head with a fish, he'll have a headache for a day. But if you teach a man to hit himself over the head with a fish, he'll have headaches for the rest of his life.
